SEARCHABLE VS. SURVIVABLE (LIVE FIRE) 

Sean Duffy

In the lecture we will be covering statistics and sharing videos to drive home points of why and when we search. We will also be covering where our searches often fail and where they are successful. The intent is to not only size up our fires on arrival, but also size up our searches so we may perform them quicker and in a more efficient manner. It is important to understand that before we make any decisions we need to know where our successes have been. In today’s fire environment we simply do not have much time. We must have a system in place for quick decision making of our searches in relation to our fire environment. We must identify our searchable spaces immediately.  There is no singular mode, rather multiple methods to enhance the survivability for the unprotected occupant. This course is about how we search, when to search and what’s the best way to affect our search increasing our odds not only to locate a victim but remove them in the most efficient manner. Let us not forget that life IS and ALWAYS will be our number one priority! It should not be the mindset of “what’s good for us” but rather we MUST concentrate our efforts on what is best for THEM!  FULL PPE AND SCBA REQUIRED.

DOWN & DIRTY FORCIBLE ENTRY

Robert James

Cameron Peek

Forcible entry tools and tactics have been around for ages. The need for keeping up with the ever so-changing game of forcing our way through things on the street is changing on us fast, and we have to be prepared. This interactive, forcible entry program is designed to teach the firefighter no matter the level of experience the main, basic and advanced principles of street smart forcible entry. This program focuses on new and older, but yet safe, street approved methods and techniques for conventional forcible entry tactics. During this time we will discuss and show techniques for making entry through and around locks, for both residential and commercial structures. Students will also learn quick access into urban steel roll gates and how to defeat the locks and locking mechanisms for them. Overcoming street hatches, additional security features like drop bars, slide bolts, burglar bars and modified locks will be covered as well. Because this class is an interactive class, students will be faced with forcible entry scenarios and explain how they would overcome the challenges as well.  HELMET & GLOVES REQUIRED.

THE SUBURBAN TRUCK (LIVE FIRE)

Joel Richardson

In many fire departments across the country,  the lack of dedicated truck company is becoming a common trend. With this in mind, firefighters must be exposed to more tactics and training that covers more than just hose placement. Search and rescue, VES, ladders, and ventilation are skills that are dictated by arrival sequence and victim demands. The primary purpose of a firefighters job is life safety, and this class will present the numerous ways that truck tactics can assist the overall success of the fire scene.
